I haven't used the cherry yet but the curly maple was really good.
Only the best
These Cherry boards are excellent specimens and the sale price makes them even more valuable
Great boards that came out of the box looking good. All but one were perfectly straight and went straight into planing, one had a very slight twist that was easy to shim and plane out. They come full dimensions - not nominal - which means you get more bang for your buck and can plane/rip them down to nominal if that's what you need. The full 4 inches wide enabled me to do a project that required more than 3-1/2 in square with the end scraps. I thought they looked good even just out of the box with a few scuffs and rugged parts, but once I planed them they really popped. Only the tiniest knots/voids in a few boards that you could barely fit a pencil in, nothing that had to be cut out and most boards had none. Finished them with a few wipes of tung oil and they go from a reddish blonde in the pictures to the rich red-brown you expect.
